From the point of view of the socialisation effects of media contents in the past few years, analyses concerning the erotic representation of muliebrity appeared which suggest that sexual attractiveness is transmitted primarily to young girls as a requirement. The presentation of the fashionable lesbian relationship is not well studied area. According to the media representation, kiss can be a part of the intimacy between women, which otherwise allows more physical intimity. We studied whether these representations form the image of young boys about female sexualism. In our survey 523 students aged 12 and 16 were asked how much bisexual content they could see in different kinds of genres and what cognitive and emotional effects (acceptance and rejection) were caused by these contents. The results showed that the lesbian erotic relationship with passionate kiss was spotted on the main TV programmes in an astonishingly high rate. There was a significant difference between students aged 12 and 16. At the age of 12 years, rejection, loathness and surprise were high in boys, whereas at the age of 16 the same held true for girls only. According to the results media representation causes increased reflexion concerning own sexualism. If the negative emotional effect is too intense, a post-trauma concerning sexual identity might develop, and in a milder case imperfect integration of sexual desires might occur.
